Art and Rithihi
Our inspiration is art and the emotions borne in them. This space is dedicated to selected works from our wardrobe that came to be as they are through the influence of loved personalities and their creations. Experience a merging of collective worlds and craft here at Art and Rithihi…
“While dance is the lifeblood and breath that defines my existence, to live is to perform. The act of it elevates me into a realm of higher being, the rhythm transporting me through infinite moments of ecstasy. It is all I could do to be patient, wait for these times of uncertainty to pass so that I can once again walk upon that fabric of undiluted emotion, the fabric of hope and fulfillment.”
Progressive thought inspires ethical choice…
Our way of creating fashion, is consciously and necessarily built on values that elevate the sense of ownership. We recognize value co-creation wherever we can and reward it equitably, all with the heartfelt hope that you might too, by making the right choice of brand.

TestimonialsAs said in their words…
At Rithihi, it's always something original that can't be found anywhere else. A beautiful collection, rare and tasteful, where I could find a saree for any occasion. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed spending hours at the store with its very friendly and helpful staff. A beautiful place!
Rithihi is a fascinating and absolutely gorgeous store.It has a fabulous selection of sarees, fabrics, ready to wear garments, a large part of which is hand picked by Valli. I like to say she has exceedingly good taste, which sometimes makes choices a lot more difficult. Also, Rithihi represents diverse India well.
I would be falling short if I do not make special mention of all the lovely people who attend on us — they are welcoming, obliging, courteous and attentive. All these features contribute to their success story. Well earned and deserving.
I wish them all the very best in the years to come
« Textiles as beauty » … this is what you feel entering the shop on Alfred House Gardens in Colpetty.
A shop retaining the spirit of India but not only. RITHIHI is a key figure bringing many narratives on handcrafted textiles. Each piece is special and is selected with great care. There are traditional pieces and contemporary ones.
I am not Sri Lankan nor Indian but I am in love with their textiles, textures, patterns. Wearing a piece is sharing a cultural dimension and collective memories.

Feeling at home
They say home is not a place, it’s a feeling; and, we’ve all grown to understand this idea with new depth after all the months in lockdown. Think about what you learned about finding little comforts, spending more time with your folk, simplicity and everyday joy. For us, that beautiful at-home mood is captured perfectly in these adorable kurtas made from Jaipur handblock printed handwoven cotton.read more
Colour is one of the most delightful aspects of how we sense the world around us. ‘Light of a particular wavelength’ is a simple enough way to explain colour. But, our experience of it is anything but simple. In the fraction of a second that it takes for our brain to identify light of seven hundred nanometers as the colour red, it would grow into a complex, many-layered idea. To some of us, it will become a symbol of love or desire; to another, it would come with associations of anger. One may find that their idea of the colour red is shaped by the memory of dear someone, immortalised within a treasured moment. It would translate as the heroic passion to one culture, while to another it will come uncomfortably close to a force of oppression.read more
